[ARIN-consult] Call for Community Consultation – Retiring ARIN E-mail Templates

We primarily use the e-mail templates as an API to interface with our IP 
management system.  It's important that such automated functionality 
remain available, rather than requiring transactions to go through a 
website designed for humans.

Once all of the templates' functionality is available via an API and 
website interfaces, it may be reasonable to deprecate and eventually 
retire the e-mail templates.  However, such a change needs to be 
communicated well in advance, to give everyone time to update their own 
systems to interact with the new API, and do appropriate testing, etc.
